I had a wedding in M'Scala this weekend, and the bride's parents had this interesting painting in their living room. The bride's brother Stef (who is also a great friend of mine) exclaimed...."Oh just a casual beheading painting in the living room!'. This painting however is important to the Maltese. It is a remake of the beheading of Saint John by Caravaggio, which he painted whilst he was imprisoned by the Pope.
So typically Maltese! Add religion to interiors just as much Indians add curry to anything...
Meanwhile below you can find the decorations in the groom's mother's bedroom. Typically religious like most Maltese bedrooms.
A new development in Gzira is way higher than the surrounding urban area and in my opinion it is quite an eyesore. Our landscapes are being manipulated drastically without much thought for the loss which we will be suffering from a cultural heritage point of view. It might just be a vista, but that vista has been changing throughout the years, and now this drastic change will have its repercussions.
The following image was an entry submitted for FAA's (Flimkien Ghal Ambjent Ahjar) recent photography competition titled 'Scenes of a City', where the focus was on sustainable development. The photo made it amongst the top 20.
